"Always fun being a #jeopardy question," Eric Trump, the executive vice president of development and acquisitions of the Trump Organization, tweeted alongside an emoji of a bell. "Who is 'brother in law,'" he said, followed by American flag and fist emojis.

While no stranger to reality TV — he joined his father's show, "The Apprentice," in 2010, according to Fortune — Eric put himself in jeopardy with his post. In the show, contestants are provided with the answers to a question by the host. The objective is to provide the host with the correct question.
Many pointed out that while the correct response was in-fact "brother-in-law," which he arguably botched, 'Eric Trump' was included in the answer to the question and not the question itself.

This fundamental rule of the game is apparent to anyone who has watched even the shortest clip from the show.
Twitter users did not hesitate to roast the president's progeny with alternative responses.

Others took the opportunity to mock Eric more generally or focused on the brother-in-law's alleged connections to Russia.
